It took me a little over an hour yesterday to go from feeling poorly to feeling amazing. It happened while writing yesterdays post, when I realized what was dragging me down. The thought being, I’m never quite good enough. If I really dig deep, I often find that thought at the foundation of my thinking, fostered by feelings of abandonment, disappointment, and guilt amongst others. It felt good to unearth that thought, as I didn’t realize it still lingered in the dungeon of my mind. In fact, moments after realizing that thought, I found myself feeling better, even bordering amazing. Although over an hour seems like a long time to write two paragraphs, it was worth it. During that experience of observing, I became aware of what I needed to write and it changed how I am in the world.
We are constantly working on the balancing act of life, the battle (as the pictures suggests) between what we know and what we feel. The cool thing is, “it’s only a battle when we are in conflict”. Yesterday, I sat down and began to observe what I was feeling. I observed that I was wearing my old moniker of not being good enough. As an observer, having no conflict, I was willing to change my feeling poorly to feeling amazing, even happy. Thanks for joining me.
“Blessings on your journey”
